Paper Plates

We partnered with Feeding America and hundreds of food banks all over the country to share real stories of hunger. We set out stacks of paper plates to be used as slates for community members to write down their stories of food insecurity.

We hope that you will find their paper plate messages moving. Most of us unknowingly witness the struggle faced by the food insecure and hungry in our communities. The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona attempts to alleviate hunger, but often what our clients need is respect.

To gain a sense for the challenges faced by our clients every day, visit our Facebook album “Paper Plates” and read real messages of hunger written on paper plates by real clients.
